Hand-Rearing Birds

Edited by: Laurie Gage and Rebecca Duerr

ISBN 9780813806662

Blackwell Publishing, August 2007

The organization of this book makes it a detailed, yet easily accessible, reference for raising many avian species, from domesticated poultry to more exotic species (toucans, parrots, lorikeets) and, of course, a wide variety of wild species (from ratites and penguins through raptors and concluding with corvids and passerines). Three introductory chapters provide important information about general care, identification, and egg incubation. Written by experts with extensive experience, the remaining chapters cover 35 species or family groups, each following the same basic structure: natural history, criteria for intervention, record-keeping, initial care and stabilization, common medical problems, diet recipes, feeding procedures, expected weight gain, housing, and preparation for wild release (when relevant).
